Is long-term oxycodone (opana) use safer than long-term vicodin or norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) use, since the former contains no acetaminophen which harms the liver?

Possibly: Most medications are processed through your liver. Normally, a healthy liver will easily process and eliminate acetaminophen.

How long should I be off of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before having a baby?

How long should I be off of norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) before having a baby?

Depends: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) has a short half life. It is not detectable in the urine ~4-5 days after the last use. I understand that you are trying to get off of it before conceiving a baby. You have to keep in mind that it will not be an easy quit as going off it can cause withdrawal and it may be a real problem to deal with, so if you plan to have a baby, i suggest you get off Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) way before you conceive. ...Read more
